Artist Keith Larsen Creates Characters From Faces He Sees In Ordinary Objects

Artist Keith Larsen has Pareidolia, a psychological phenomenon in which the mind responds to a stimulus (an image or a sound) by perceiving a familiar pattern where none exists. Common examples are perceived images of animals, faces, or objects in cloud formations, the man in the moon, the moon rabbit, hidden messages within recorded music played in reverse or at higher or lower-than-normal speeds, and hearing indistinct voices in random noise such as that produced by air conditioners or fans.
Keith regularly spots these types of expressions in ordinary things -often, that others don’t see. To illuminate his creative visions, he illustrates these characters and brings them to life with silly stories: ‘A lot of the time, people don’t see the faces I see in inanimate objects. So, I decided to illustrate them in a cartoonish way and write little stories about them to bring them to life’.
